Cashew Chicken

We love Chinese food! We have been eating so much of it that I have been buying chopsticks and take out boxes at the restaurant supply store! Yes, it is more fun to eat out of take out boxes! :o) So, here is my version of cashew chicken… I’m pretty proud of it!

1 egg white

1 Tablespoon cornstarch

1 Tablespoon soy sauce

1 pound cubed chicken breast (boneless, skinless)

Mix egg white, cornstarch and soy sauce. Add chicken and stir to coat. Let stand 15 minutes.

Prep veggies and sauce while chicken sits.


1/4 cup chicken broth

1 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon cornstarch

1 Tablespoon soy sauce


1/2 cup onion, cut into bite-sized pieces

1 cup bell pepper, cut into bite-sized pieces

2-3 carrots, sliced

2-3 ribs celery, sliced

1 can sliced water chestnuts, drained

1/2 cup whole cashews

1/4-1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Drain chicken in strainer. Heat 2 Tablespoons of sesame oil in large skillet. Stir fry chicken until it turns white. Add veggies and stir-fry until chicken is cooked through and veggies are crisp-tender. Add cashews and water chestnuts. Cook until chestnuts are heated through. Add crushed red pepper flakes. Stir fry for about 30 seconds.
